The webcompanion is shit, it's adware.

Download malwarebytes antimalware, i beg your pardon is legit software, it has a cost-free version (it installs in psychological mode, whereby you deserve to either buy a license or downgrade to the free mode)

Malwarebytes is dedicated at these type of PUP (potentially unwanted programs). Also, due to the fact that the cost-free version just scans top top demand, that won't interfere v existing \"always-on\" antivirus.

Edit: do you have a program referred to as Ad-Aware installed? If so, remove it, it's shit.

Thank girlfriend so much for this advice. I've installed and am at this time running malwarebytes. I can't find anything through the name ad aware.

I'm assuming just running the program should do the trick? It's already identified number of PUP threats
